    Downloaded the app and it refused to let me do anything on it before paying $2 to ‘keep couchsurfing alive’ and now that the money has been deducted from my account the whole application is crashing and clitching out meaning I still can’t use it!What a rip off

    There is a REASON this company has an “F” grade on the BBB website (Better Businesses Bureau). They are now charging a mandatory fee just to LOOK at their app. They also charged me $60 to verify my account which I did NOT authorize. They make you think it is free to verify but then hit you with the hidden fee. And they refuse to give a refund. I will be disputing the charge. Thank GOD other competitors are getting more popular, such as and!
  • Makes so much energy

    It makes my iPhone hot
  • Extremely frustrated

    You should at least let us have a small free trial of the app before having us pay for it. I just wasted my money, and I'm far too poor to waste my money for nothing.
  • Glitched out

    Glitched on my phone won’t work just keeps thinking!
  • App is glitchy, and they just demanded more money

    By Lovejoypeace77
    My yearly renewal $payment just went through literally a week ago and I log on today to respond to a Couchsurfing request and they won’t even let me in to my account unless I immediately pay MORE money. I don’t use the app because it’s glitchy and I couldn’t see messages, so I use the website. This Couchsurfing app is on the way out. They sold out to corporate greed and ignored the members and people wanting to help make them great. If you want to know what happened, there’s this great article on “bootsnall “. Lost Roots: The Failure of For-Profit Couchsurfing. I will most likely be deactivating my account as soon as I am enabled to sign back in. I have been a member for probably six years.
  • Poorly put together app & service

    By ProdigalSon08
    I’ve used Couchsurfing for years. The app has always left something to be desired (there are unfixed bugs that have been around since 2018). I’ve had “verified” status because I host often. However, there’s been a pandemic for a year so I obviously haven’t hosted since the last week of February 2020. As soon as February 2021 hit, I could not login. Or rather, when I logged in all that I could see & interact with was a screen saying that I needed to pay a monthly or yearly fee. Couldn’t access my messages, my profile, or anything else on the app. If that wasn’t hostile enough, when I then paid their ransomware fee, I was then greeted by ads. Ads. What? Didn’t even know the app had ads because in my 4+ years of using it I’d never seen not a one. Apparently a free verified user can go ad-free, but a *paid* user still sees ads?! And not just little banners at the bottom or top of the screen either. They’re everywhere. So much so that it breaks the UI of the app wherever they appear (which, again, is everywhere). This is a poorly-coded sorry excuse for an app that is excessively user-hostile and hasn’t been updated significantly in years. It isn’t worth your money.
  • Paywalled

    I can’t even try the app without subscribing for a fee. I’ve never used this app. How can I know if it’s worth spending money? Besides, most people don’t like apps with regular subscription costs.
  • Crash king

    I would LOVE to be able to use this app, but it is constantly crashing. Immediately after I login it shuts down. What a sad thing.
